Amanda Coulson visits students at Carmel College
- Thu 6th Dec '12
Amateur boxer and Athlete Mentor, Amanda Coulson, recently paid a visit to Carmel College, Darlington, to share her unique sporting experiences.
Students at the Darlington based College were incredibly excited and inspired in hearing about her sporting success in the male dominated sport of boxing. They even got the chance to try the sport for themselves with a training session led by Amanda using specialised equipment.
Amanda continues to motivate and inspire pupils across the country as one of our many dedicated and talented Athlete Mentors, visiting registered schools organising projects with Sky Sports Living for Sport.
